TAMATEA , Trying to find more info about my nanny's whanau
Kiaora Koutou my name is Adam Ogilvy. I am trying to find more information on my Great grandmothers family I only know her as Naana but I think her name was Ellen Tamatea. I think she was born either in Tiniroto by Wairoa or in Waituhi Gisborne around 1905 her father was John Tamatea and her mother was Mere Te Paenga Wati (Watts). she (Ellen Tamatea) lived at the Pere homestead Waituhi and met my great grandfather Raymond Airlie Ogilvy (he was Nga Puhi/Te Rarawa) in Ormond their oldest son (my grandad) Raymond Te Kani Ogilvy was born at the Pere homestead around 1924-5 He told me Rongowhakaata Halbert registerd him when he was born.
My Great Grandmother passed away in the late 1990's in Gisborne
I would have asked her alot of questions about our whakapapa and who are our whanau,marae, hapu, iwi but she had Alzihmers for most of my life and worst of all my fathers whanau didn't have much to do with her but when I was born (1975) she drove from Gizzy to Hamilton and gave me a blanket which I still have
Any Help would be "capital K for KAPAI!!!
Naku Noa Adam
